If you are wondering whether Louis Vuitton make dog collars then you are either simply intrigued by the finer things in life, dumbfounded that Louis Vuitton would make such a product, or are looking for a fashionable designer dog collar then I have some answers for you. With that being said, does Louis Vuitton make dog collars?
Does Louis Vuitton Make Dog Collars?
Louis Vuitton makes designer dog collars starting at a price of £220 for the ‘Baxter dog collar PM’. For this premium price you will receive a leather backing collar and ID tag.
Designer dog collars are a fashion statement like all designer items but there is an argument to be made in some cases for the quality simply being superior and the design and name being timeless. If you are returning from a 5* trip in Paris and you decided not to take your dog with you then I think such a gift is the least you can do for them for not enjoying the trip together. After all, we are all about travelling with pets! If you really want to push the boat out, then throw the leash in your basket too!
Who Are Louis Vuitton?
You may be wondering who Louis Vuitton really are, what do they have to do with travel and pets?
Fashion was Taking off
Louis Vuitton's beginnings go back to 1837 when France was rallying in the middle of an economic expansion and this attracted many people to Paris. This is when Mr Vuitton also visited and got involved in the luggage/fashion industry as a trunk making apprentice then he moved on to create the modern suitcase which I guess ties back in with travel!
Travel Became Possible
The Louis Vuitton brand was established when people were travelling to Paris and steam power trains and ships were making travel more accessible to people worldwide in the 1800's.
A Luxury Brand Was Built
Louis Vuitton is a French fashion house who has held the title for being one of the world's most valuable luxury brands for well over a decade and they sell designer items such as handbags and posh dog collars and leads which can easily run into thousands of pounds. The brand is worth a whopping thirty-three billion pounds!
Pets and the French Bulldog in France
The 'Bouledogue Francais' (otherwise known as a French Bulldog) was known as a companion dog imported from England and were seen in Paris in France. This has nothing to do with Louis Vuitton, but I thought I would throw it in there to pull all of this together for you and because we have one who has a better life than me (and rightfully so). Swiftly moving back on topic...
What is the Louis Vuitton Designer Dog Collar made of?
The designer dog collar comes in a plain square box with the designers name on the front. It usually has a dust bag which you can slide it out of. It has a leather backing and an ID tag attached to it which cannot be removed. There is no clasp to take it off.
What size Louis Vuitton Dog Collar Should I Buy?
According to regular shoppers in the Louis Vuitton world, the sizing is usually measured as ‘PM – Small’, ‘MM - Medium’ and ‘GM – Large’. However, the two sizes this designer dog collar is available in are:
- Baxter X-Small (extra small)
- Baxter PM (Small)
Why would a dog wear a Louis Vuitton designer dog collar?
Let’s be brutally honest here. Dogs love to roll around in mud and ….other stuff. They like to jump in the water, slide along the wall, lay on their back and scratch and dive through sand. So why would we buy a £200+ collar to be ruined?
I mean we would take care of our most precious clothing items and accessories. Our watches, our handbags. Playing the devil's advocate, we wouldn’t wear our best clothing and bags and watches when we are walking our dogs through the woods, but we would when dining out or going out for a drink or event.
At Travfurler we are encouraging you to go out with your pets. It doesn’t always have to be through the muddy woods, or blasting along the waters on a kayak, it could be on a boat down the river Thames with you, or in a country pub in Oxford with you whilst you enjoy a Sunday roast and glass of wine.
If you are wearing your best gear, maybe they could join you in their designer dog collars such as the Louis Vuitton? You will see lots of dogs in designer gear in the Bluebird, Chelsea if you want a pet friendly place for an afternoon of drinks and food.
How much do designer dog collars cost?
Designer clothing and accessories doesn’t always need a brand name to be a timeless, quality accessory.
Let’s take Tweed as an example. Tweed is a timeless material which has stood the test of time and still looks incredibly smart. Tweed dog collars and leads really stand out as luxury affluent items.
‘Tweed’ is a hand-woven, thick, rough, and coarse fabric that was initially made on looms. The colours of tweed were and still are those that resemble the earth and nature because that is what they were inspired by. Even in today's modern world, we still relate tweed with the earth, the countryside, nature, and anything outdoor related. The fabric is rich in colour and quality and is made from wool and it was once used for tweed jackets and hunting, fishing, and golfing attire on country estates, but times change, and we now have canine accessories such as luxury dog collars on the agenda for your luxury dog!
If you choose products manufactured in countries such as England where the quality material and metal fittings are stapled together with some actual quality control, you can get a finish, look and long-lasting designer pet accessories at a fraction of the price of Louis Vuitton. You will get less of a look from people for trying to show off and more a look of admiration and intrigue. Your pets will ooze class without shouting about it.
Fashion can be subtle and wonderful for both you and your pets and it doesn’t need to cost the world.
